Your theory about the only 1 vote #1 is likely correct.
Yeah, I guess I'll clarify this now that it is out of the way. A number one vote was worth 200 points. Everything from The Sword to Chris Whitley received one vote, which happened to be a number one vote (other than Steve Reich who received four votes that totally to 200 points and everything that is tied comes up in alphabetical order in the spreadsheet with no easy way to change it other than to manually type in all the rank orders which isn't happening). On one hand, I like the way it worked out because it means that everyone's top choice made the list, but on the other hand, you have someone like James Brown who eight people voted for that falls below all the one-vote-wonders. It's too late to do anything about it now, and I doesn't pose any issues to the countdown past #251, so I guess it really isn't that big of a deal. When I post the results from the spreadsheet at the end, hopefully this will make a little more sense.
All right, now that that is taken care of, we can get back to counting down.
